A few times a week I escape my crazy life (and I do mean crazy) and take a quick, healthy and relaxing trip to the tropics. If you think I’m talking about Fiji, you’re mistaken. And I wish. I’m talking about my local hot yoga studio. It is my release and my refuge. I look […]

I like to run.  Sometimes I love to run.  I really love to run to good, new-to-me music.  In fact, I am training for a triathlon right now and you are not allowed to run with headphones AT ALL during the race, which means I am doing my training runs WITHOUT music and it is […]
